Yellow Glass Ornament

Angela Daniels posted a photo of her ornaments last week on her blog. It got me thinking about how I should start photographing and recording why certain ornaments have special meaning to me. Our tree has some typical shiny "filler" balls that are just ornaments. But it also is full of ornaments that tell a story. With that idea in mind and the prompt from Dec 6 of dw2007 ("create a unique border..."), I created tonight's card:
Supplies: "Black Frame" (I changed it to white) from the Color My World kit by Rhonna Farrer (Two Peas in a Bucket); Bazzill cardstock; Uniball Signo white pen; Making Memories epoxy sticker.

  1. Love the idea of scrapbooking your ornaments, Sarah. I have so many with stories, and I've never taken the time to write them down. No one but me would even know them! It's a great idea! :-) TFS! Janet

  2. what a great list! I love working with preschoolers too...they will either keep you young or seriously make you age quickly!!!

  3. love your idea for your latest card! great joy list too!

  4. I love the idea of recording each ornament and why you love it!

  5. I think I am going to have to start scrapping about some of our really special ornaments:) Thanks for the inspiration!!

  6. This is great! I'm still at the giant photo of ALL the ornaments but I'm glad it inspired you to tackle them one-on-one. That is my goal this Christmas as I pack each one up. Thanks for letting me know my random thoughts are sometimes useful =)

  7. I love the idea of scrapbooking your ornaments. My mil gave us all her ornaments that her other children didn't want plus ones I got from my parents. Lots of great stories on the tree.


Thanks for leaving a comment! I enjoy reading them all. :)
